You Bright, Risen Angels 

Wednesday, Feb 6 2008
Tonight, the art in the exhibit "Blackout" will be doing double duty: first, it will illuminate your thinking, inspire your senses, all that bullshit. Second, it will illuminate, period. No other light will be allowed to shine at this opening reception, save what is coming from the art. Unless most of that art has the same shape and functionality as a desk lamp, it should be quite a show. Curators Amy Cancelmo and Kevin E. Taylor have put together a group of 13 artists, including Root Division residents Selene Foster, Rachael Jablo, Renetta Sitoy, and Jeremiah Jenkins. We're hoping at least one of them wheels in a rotating searchlight, but even if all we get is a few glow sticks and a 20-watt bulb, don't fret: The place will be set ablaze with shows by local acts Lemonade and 3 Leafs, site-specific sound performances, and a piece by decadent theater company Elastic Future.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
